Weis Markets Buying 38 Out-Of-State Stores

SUNBURY PA – Weis Markets, based in Sunbury and which operates stores locally in Gilbertsville, Oley and Pennsburg, said Thursday (July 14, 2016) it had agreed to buy 38 Food Lion supermarket locations in Maryland, Virginia and Delaware. Weis said the purchase allowed it to expand in markets “contiguous to our current trade area.”

No purchase price was disclosed.

The conversion of the stores from Food Lion to Weis should be completed in September and October (2016), it added. The company said it would be interested in hiring current Food Lion teams for the new locations.

Earlier this year Weis also bought five Mars Super Markets in Baltimore County MD. When both purchases are complete, Weis will operate 203 stores in seven states.
